Having been born in Fayetteville, North Carolina, and raised in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, E. Marie Sanders claims to be a mixture of southern hospitality with northern know-how.  She taught in the public school system for 12 years and has served as a youth pastor for the past 17 years, observing the habits of the age group she hoped to write for one day.  The stories she told in classroom grabbed her reluctant readers’ attention and guided her toward putting the stories on paper.  Her story lines and ideas develop by combining a dash of urban real life with great storytelling fiction and imagination.  E. Marie seeks to grab the reader, youth and adults alike, in the very beginning and continues to build momentum throughout the story in order to make the reading experience a joy for those who frown upon the pastime.  Her first book, To K(no)w Avail, won the 2011 Favorite Book of the Year honors with From a Writer’s POV Magazine.  Blindsided made her an Amazon.com Best Selling Author by reaching the #11 spot on the Contemporary Fiction Best Sellers list. Her latest book, Consequences and Repercussions, is the second book in The K(no)w Series and will please anticipating readers.

      E. Marie is the English Language Arts Curriculum Supervisor with the Public Schools of Robeson County. She is a member of Faith Tabernacle Christian Center and the North Carolina Writers' Network.  She and her husband Eric reside in Lumberton, North Carolina.
